Sweet Quinoa Pudding

I think it is safe to say that Quinoa is actually becoming a stape in North America, Europe and ever so slowly in Asia. Now, people might say that this is a very expensive ingredient to use, and locally i would have to agree with you. However, quinoa has been consumed for years in South America and is actually quite fairly priced over there. But of course, things are packaged, labelled as healthy and then flown to foreign countries, making them gain in value. The more we consume it though, i’m pretty sure people will try and pull down the prices in the coming years.

Here is a quick recipe for a hot sweet quinoa pudding that is a good replacement for people who do not want to eat wheat or oats.


Take 1 cup of soaked and drained quinoa.

Boil 3 cups of milk with 1 tsp of sugar (could be 2 tbsps of honey), 2 drops of vanilla essence (or a scrapped vanilla bean).

Put the quinoa in the milk, bring to a simmer and cook through gently (20mins)

Chop up some mixed fruit dressed with some citrus juice.

Toss it all together. Sweeten if needed.

      This looks good! I was actually looking for quinoa pudding/porridge recipes online after I had an awesome quinoa porridge at a cafe on the weekend…it had black and white quinoa, cinnamon, dried coconut shavings and persimmon (I think) also had coconut milk so kinda reminded me of the Pinoy guinatan albeit healthier version…so def on the quinoa pudding/porridge bandwagon now! your vanilla-infused quinoa pudding with citrus tones sounds yum! Might try and make it next weekend :)

      This is a great idea! I always associate quinoa with cold salads. I think I will follow Casey´s comment and make a guinataan-inspired quinoa pudding! coconut milk, little sago and some langka strips (thankfully we have canned langka here from the Oriental stores). Great post!

      I would like to ask if oatmeal cookies are ok if your on a diet?thank you

      1. Erwan January 8, 2015 at 9:15 am

        Oatmeal cookies may sound healthier than the regular cookies but they are still loaded with the same fat and sugar as a regular cookie. However, the occasional oatmeal cookie can satisfy your sweet tooth and is a better option than a candy bar or ice cream. Thanks for dropping by! :)

      Would it be alright to put the hot quinoa pudding on the fridge and consume it on another day?




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
